In today’s entry, I learned that a Saudi family is suing a genie that has been harassing them.
I honestly don’t know where to begin. It’s in a Sharia court, so that tells us why the case even made it that far.
My next question is how do they prove the genie is there, much less get it to show up? Even better, how would you like to be the guy who gets to deliver the summons? Then, supposing the court even finds in the family’s favor, what are they supposed to do about it? Wave a restraining order at it? If it is an all-powerful entity straight out of the Quran, why would it care what a bunch of humans had to say?
Please, please, please follow up on this story, CNN, because I would love to see where it goes from here.
